Producing Items for the Memorial Market

There's much more to this market than urns and headstones

When we think about the memorial market, the products that probably come to mind for most of us are urns, headstones, or statues. If you stop and think about it though, it’s really much more than that. One definition of the word memorial is “an object which serves as a focus for the memory of something, usually a deceased person or an event.” That means there are many options open to almost anyone in the awards and personalization industry for helping their customers create memorials.

Sometimes all that’s needed is an engraved plate to be attached to a memorial, or perhaps the memorial is a plaque to pay tribute to an individual or group of individuals who have passed. With the large variety of metals and plastics available for interior/exterior use, if you do rotary or laser engraving, those are services you can easily provide for your customer.

Some other product ideas include:

  • Memorial markers, plaques, or way-finding signage
  • Memorial flag display cases
  • Memory quilts
  • Shadow boxes
  • Personalized photo frames
